Actually you can ruin an O2 sensor doing that....I would just get another.

Yep, I'm pretty sure that spraying stuff like that on an O2 sensor is bad...no good, no no no. Click the image to open in full size. I would just look into a new one. Better then a cleaned old sensor Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.
